Question about Canon MultiPASS MP390 All-In-One InkJet Printer
IS IT POSSIBLE TO SET THE MACHINE TO DO BLACK PRINTING FROM COLOR CARTRIDGE??
I HAVE RUN OUT OF BLACK INK AND WOULD LIKE TO USE COLOR CARTRIDGE TO DO BLACK PRINTING.
Even if you try and print black from the colour Cartridges to do this you would have to make the text a very dark green in colour. You will find after a little time the printer will stop work and a error will come up on the printer. Canon printer have this system in them where the printer will have ink count back when this counter gets to 0 the printer will stop and give you a ink tank error. the only way to fix this problem is to replaced the ink cartridge in the printer. This system is to protect the purged unit and the printer heads in the printer.

Yes, you can print out in black from a color cartridge, however it is not advised as you will run out of colored ink twice as fast as it combines all the colors to get black.However it works great when your in a pinch and need black ink.
Just go to your printer properties when you print and the option will be in there someware.

Apparently, if you hold the "resume button" (the one next to the power button) for about five seconds after you get the message saying to replace the color ink cartridge the machine starts printing. I did this after I went to "maintenance" under "preferences" and changed ink to "black only." At first that alone did not work, but after trying the resume button for 5 secs it worked okay.
